  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Front office incompetence!!!

Made an appointment last friday, but my doctor wasn't going to in until Thursday because was an regent matter the woman on the phone said she could get me in 8 o'clock Monday but with a different doctor. I arrived today at 750am for my appointment and there was someone sitting outside in their car so I thought the office wasn't open yet so I waited about 5 minutes, then decided to check the door it was open but no one was up front so I sat down. In the mean time the person who was outside came in, signed in, and sat down. About 5 minutes went by before the office staff came out from the back and asked if I was here for a blood draw and I stated no I here for an appointment but I hadn't signed in, so I signed in. After a few minutes she stated my appointment wasn't until next Monday. I stated no, it's today 8 am. She said there was only one doctor there today and he was booked. I then told her why I was there and what I was told on the phone. She disappeared so waited for her to come back and talk to me. She had moved over out of sight, she had texted the employee who made the appointment and check with them if I was telling her the truth. She never even bothered to check with the doctor. So I asked again if she could get me in she said no, she had an appointment tomorrow. I said no thanks and left. Someone just called me from the office, said they had a cancellation and could get me in later today. I have been in there office later in the day, you sit in the lobby for over an hour. The reason I didn't go urgent care Friday was my medical history, now I need to find a new primary care doctor because of the office incompetence. I have been in the lobby when this staff bad month another patient and I also been lied to by them about a referral being sent when it hadn't been. I'm not sure if there are understaffed and over worked or whether or not they just don't care. Either way my medical care suffers and when you don'the feel well, no one wants to deal with it!

Worse doctor and needs to lose her licences. Went in because I was diagnosed with mono from going to the ER. Anyone who has had mono knows it can take hrs to muster uo the energy to get up. After I get to the dr. I notice dr riske now charging an additional 75.00 if you need fmla paperwork done on top of an additional visit...annoyed but ok... when the nurse checks my vitals my blood pressure is 127/98 and for a 32 yr old that is high and I have a fever... I'm finally taken into the room and I'm waiting a hour. When she finally walks in she doesn't apologize but says the clock is fast when indeed it's actually late so it's still been a hr. She begins to ask me questions I answer them but notice and attitude and I ask why she proceeds to blame me and gets up and walks out and says she can't help me.. so apparently letting me die of high blood pressure, letting my fever be untreated and prescribing me alternative medicine is something she was unwilling to do. I have never been treated so bad let alone by a health professional. She should be sued for malpractice and never treat patients again

Think twice before scheduling with this practice!!!!

I have been going to dr Risks for many years and have seen it going in the wrong direction since the start of the weight loss and anti-aging clinics began. Dr Risks has decided to concentrate on the money, not the care. Staff turnover is like a revolving door -you never know who you will see! Then every time I was waiting for my appointment I was told they could test me for allergies and It wouldn't' cost me anything (only the insurance companies!!!) Then I noticed that they now had their own "pharmacy" All the while I was complaining to friends that I needed to find a new doctor. And I was noticing fewer and fewer people in their waiting room. The final straw was when I actually saw a memo handed out to staff telling them not to address more than 2 issues with a patient. Have them schedule another appointment. And we wonder why our insurance premiums are so high! This office will not be collecting anymore from my insurance company!!!!
